The Visual Artist and Craft Makers Awards (VACMA) are a programme of small grants schemes with a range of local authorities and art agencies across Scotland to support visual artists and craft makers in their creative and professional development. The deadline is February 7th, 2018, and you can download the application here!
Applications that demonstrate the quality of work most clearly, opportunity for development as well as an ongoing commitment to developing a visual arts or crafts practice, are most likely to be chosen.
Established by Creative Scotland, these partnerships give support at a local level and work with local panels to offer funds to support practitioners at all stages of their career who have demonstrated a commitment to their work and in developing their practice through new work, new skills or new opportunities.
Awards of between £500 and £1,500 are available.
